Up for grabs

I'm selling my 1970's dining table. We're all out of room here and it's now time to go to a loving new home.
I can also imagine it as an amazing display table, in an open shop space, with gorgeous polished boards and a tone of natural light.........hopefully somebody else does too.

with Thanks

This is a Gratitude Wrap (pattern available at Soul Mama) I made as a thank you present for Erin, at Toby's in Potts Point. A little thank you for all of the wonderful smiles and huge 'Good mornings' the little man and I recieved while we were in Sydney.

We potted these succulents last weekend, which we bought at the St Kilda Botanical Gradens and look out on the each morning when we open our blind. It's amazing the difference a few plants can make to your day.
We're now making plans for our vegie patch which we anticpate having completed towards the end of April. It'll be a big planter box full of delicious fresh vegies for winter stews. Any recommendations for planting will be greatly appreciated.

PS. at the moment I'm loving this blog, Orangette.

The boxes are finally all unpacked and we're settling back into life in Melbourne. I'm even getting through this pile of books and lo and behold....the quilt is coming along. I'm taking great pleasure in hand stitching it together once litlle Ziya is tucked up in bed at night. Pictures to come...... so stay tuned.
